Ocean County College will present its “Irish Dance Spectacular” next month in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day.
The performance will be held Friday, March 20 at 8 p.m. Titled “Rhythm in the Night – The Irish Dance Spectacular,” the show will be presented at the Grunin Center, Main Stage, Building #12, Ocean County College, Main Campus, College Drive, Toms River.
Told through Irish step dance, Rhythm in the Night features an original soundtrack that delivers an orchestral atmosphere. The battle scenes transcend the struggle of dark versus light as lightning fast rhythms and a thunderous dance troupe display Irish dance like never before seen. Rhythm in the Night is a performance the entire family can enjoy as it turns an age-old art form into the most exciting Irish dance spectacular ever to be experienced.
Rhythm in the Night is described as “an epic journey derived from a tale of good versus evil where deception reigns and temptation rivals the strongest of wills.” The story unfolds during the Dark Ages when the land was ruled by the wicked sorceress Azura, whose spell has trapped the legendary hero Balor under her control to command her legion of relentless henchmen. In a final attempt to rescue their leader, the people call upon Balor’s loving companion Aisling, along with his younger brother, Solas, and their knights to break the spell and restore peace to the kingdom. As the storm rolls in and the lightning crashes, redemption will rise from the shadows in the legend that has come to be known as Rhythm in the Night.
